Over Labor Day weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to head out Big Bear to explore the San Bernardino mountains. We arrived in Big Bear at around 9:00 AM to check into our Airbnb and then headed out to the Gold Mountain and Jacoby Trail. The Gold Mountain trail was really fun, but really challenging to do when you go on your own. We hope to go back again. When then headed to the Jacoby Trail which offered great scenic views and a more calmer trail. After, we headed out to the Village in the heart of Big Bear city to have lunch. We explored the downtown area and headed back to our cabin for the rest of the evening.
The next day, we went to check out Snow Summit and did some scenic hiking around the mountain top. To get to Snow Summit, you take the ski lift up and ride it up for about 15 minutes. The ride gives you great views of the lake and Big Bear city. We spent a good part of the late morning there and then headed down to the Village again. We did some souvenir shopping and grabbed some coffee too. Later that night, we went on an evening cruise around the lake and saw a great sunset. After the cruise we went to have a late dinner in downtown. It was a great way to end our short trip in Big Bear.
Big Bear is a great weekend getaway destination and offers a lot of fun outdoor. Till next time! See ya!
